Our Story

An artist-run stationery business inspired by the beauty and colors found in everyday life, JAKE & META creates note cards and paper notions with images that are meant to be shared. Each image is a hand-drawn original illustration of subject matter that is simple yet depicted with detail. And every image has a story. Graphic arts are a form of expression—a way to share a moment or an interpretation or a feeling. Just as a written note or gift is an expression of the sender. It’s about making a connection.

JAKE & META Officially established in 2009, the creativity behind JAKE & META started in grade school art classes when owner/illustrator Marcelle Rockwell began drawing what she saw and learning about colors—how to create and mix and match them. After earning a BA in Art Design from Duke University, and spending 10 years in the advertising world of New York City, Marcelle has returned to North Carolina where the wide-open outdoors with beautiful flowers and wildlife provide endless inspiration.

We hope you will enjoy owning and sharing your JAKE & META selections as much as we've enjoyed creating them!
